Produce

While I’m on the subject of health, the Environmental Working Group just updated their Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides. Since we’re all on a budget, especially these days, it’s good to prioritize organic buying habits:

Dirty Dozen: (most contaminated nonorganic produce)

peaches, apples, sweet bell peppers, celery, strawberries, cherries, kale, carrots, nectarines, pears, lettuce, imported grapes

Consistently Clean: (least contaminated nonorganic produce)

onions, avocados, corn, pineapples, mangos, asparagus, sweet peas, kiwi, cabbages, eggplants, papayas, watermelon
